Complainant Name:
Ms Lillian White

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Liverpool Echo

Complaint:

Ms Lillian White complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the article had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The article, reporting on a court appearance by the complainant's son, had included details about his home address that the newspaper had obtained from the court. The complainant made clear that her son no longer lived at her address, and that this information was therefore inaccurate.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the online article to include the complainant's son's correct home address. Furthermore, the newspaper gave an undertaking to take all reasonable steps to publish the correct address in future articles.
